No Experience Necessary

He had almost no experience as a street cop, absolutely none as a supervisor, but he made Assistant Deputy Superintendent from Patrolman in under 6 years.

He had no experience in the political arena, yet became the mayor's Chief of Staff.

He had no experience in urban transportation, yet became the head of the CTA.

He has no experience in teaching or education, and is poised to become head of one of the largest and most troubled public school systems in the nation.
  • Mayor Richard Daley is considering CTA President Ron Huberman as a potential successor to Arne Duncan in running the city's public school system, sources told the Tribune on Friday.

    The mayor could make his selection as early as next week, said a source familiar with the selection process.

    Like Duncan, who left to become U.S. education secretary for President Barack Obama, Huberman does not have a teaching background. Huberman headed the city's Office of Emergency Management and Communications for about a year after nine years with the Chicago Police Department.

    In 2005, Daley named Huberman his chief of staff following a series of City Hall scandals. In April 2007, the mayor tapped Huberman to lead the financially troubled Chicago Transit Authority.

Jack-of-all-trades. And master of none.

First, I think Ron must be a very bright guy..not my type exactly, but hey it's the new millenium, I gots to go with the flow. Second, Hizzoner must not see him as a political threat down the road, which is funny since he's creating an unbelievable resume' for him. Even if he only had his ticket punched in all those city departments, while he had that cup of coffee, and moved on to the next, you could easily be persuaded to try this guy as the new head of whatever. So is this a case of the Mayor recognizing that Huberman's intellect can handle things but that his character keeps him from being an eventual political adversary? And I don't mean to dis you Ron, since it's practically all been said here before, it's just hard to get over the "wunderkind" aspect of your career; I mean ask Dougie Howser how things turned out in the end. Anyway, if the Federal spigot opens up for CPS he'll look like he's doing wonderfuly...good luck.

Ron Huberman is a prime example of a new organism -- the Pure Manager, operating in a world of theory and abstraction. They know nothing about anything they manage, yet remain salaried and secure with their Six Sigma "Black Belts."

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/
Six_sigma

Not like when the boss started the business by digging the hole and pouring the slab first, and could run any machine in the place. Not like when the boss was "the first in the door on a man-with-a-gun call."

Not like when the boss was respected, is it?

Today? He's smooth, sleek, universal, inoffensive, indefinable...exactly what the Daley administration seems to seek out.

There used to be a few bosses at the top and many workers at the bottom. Now, the pyramid has been inverted; all we have are Hubermans on top of more Hubermans.

There are still three actual workers left in the factory, so to speak, but they're trying to get rid of them too.

Then and only then will we have the perfect manager-world as defined in the Dilbert cartoon -- "If we manage effectively enough, we can turn a profit without having any product at all."

This technique works so well that it's helped to trigger a depression.

As a retired teacher, Arne Duncan couldn't have been any worse. Paul Vallas was a good Supt. of CPD. He didn't Mickey Mouse around with the kids. Couldn't read or pass the tests, you stayed behind. Only let the kids stay in bilingual education for three years. Before that some of the kids went into Bilingual Kindergarten and were still in bilingual education in eighth grade. Is it a wonder they couldn't make it in high school. The teacher couldn't promote socially. He was a good Supt.

Everyone knows that Duncan was just a mouthpiece for the Puppeteer on the 5th floor, and I assume Huberman is comfortable with allowing another man to pull his strings.

A longtime dream of mine has been to find a pair of tap shoes to fit these herculean feet of mine and tap dance on the loud marble of the Chicago Public Schools. Tap tap tap. It's starting to feel real.

Look fella's and ladies change is hard. But Ron and Ray H. are the type of leadership we need for the times ahead. Isreal has been dealing with terror a long time and these two are expert in the field. Ray is the real driving force in us getting those badly needed m16's and Ron is cut from same cloth. Hopefully when Supt. Weiss is finished here we get a Ron Ray team at the top. Can you imagine. What our current Supt. started these two cutting edge pros will finish. Come on people the mayor as much as we gripe knows what he is doing. If we are asked to sacrafice a little I know we will stand up to the task. And let us not forget with the current team in the White House the sky is the limit. I for one just do what Im told and trust and respect my leaders.

Daley is grooming his son to be the next,think about it.He enlists in the military to gain "COMBAT EXPERIENCE" to give the appearence that he is honorable like his dad (whatta-croc),and when "DAD" can no longer function as the Mayor or no longer desires to be Mayor Jr. dickhead will step up to the plate because it is the honorable thing to do,it is what his daddy would want him to do.Mark these words: Daley dickhead Sr.wants Daley dickhead Jr. to be his successor

You are one jealous fuck. 5 years experience as a patrolman. Did alot more work then half the fucks on this site. As and ADS was a supervisor did alot more supervision then half the superviros on this site. Eecutive managment experience is what is needed to run large scale burracracies such as CTA and CPS. He has that.
All I can say is you are jealous of a guy who works hard to move up the ladder. On with the lies, personal shots and outright hatred filled posts. At least in this one post you got a little bit of the truth.

I won't comment on his tenure at CPD, but Huberman has done pretty well at CTA. The buses are running closer to on-time, with fewer gaps. Missed bus runs caused by absent drivers are way down. And he found money that Kruesi said didn't exist to fix slow zones on the el. It's made a real difference.

Yeah, some of that is just that it became such a political problem for Daley that whoever was put in place had the reins to make a few changes for the better. But it actually happened under Huberman. After all, Weis had a similar charge, and look how horribly that's turned out. You could easily see an anti-driver-sick-day program under Huberman turning into a frickin' morale disaster, but it hasn't.

Just saying'. He's not the wunderkind, and I do have reservations about it, because he doesn't have an education background, but I think he's a better administrator than many.

Vallas didn't know education either, but a lot changed under Vallas. The district went from the worst in the nation, where most schools were led by people uninterested in education to one that merely has all the problems of an urban district.

"According to Terry Savage there ain't gonna be no State or County pensions for ANYone."

The actual Savage article is here:

http://www.suntimes.com/business/savage/1395694,illinois-pensions-battle-retirement-012409.article

She doesn't specifically mention our pension but rather the State of Illinois - County pension funds.

The most important piece of the article:

The Illinois Municipal Retirement Fund. Last year it was 100 percent, fully funded!

This plan covers the employees of 2,900 local governments - cities, villages, counties, parks, libraries, and other local districts, outside Chicago. The plan covers 177,000 active members, and has 85,000 current retirees.

Based on asset size, with $24.2 billion in assets at the start of 2008, the IMRF is the second-largest public pension in Illinois.

In 2005-07, the IMRF reached 100 percent funding level, an unprecedented accomplishment for an Illinois pension fund. Certainly, it took a hit in the market crash of 2008, but IMRF fund executive director Louis Kosiba says: "When all the numbers come in, we anticipate that IMRF will be better funded than most pension systems nationwide and statewide."

How have they managed so well since they got started in 1941? "What is unique about IMRF is that our board of trustees was given authority to set employer contribution rates, and that we have enforcement authority to COLLECT those contributions. We've used conservative actuarial principles . . . and we've been disciplined over the years about collecting the required monies."


In other words- they didn't let their pension funds get raided so they will be more stable and at a 100% funded rate- they already are better funded than all of the City of Chicago plans.

Hey SCC did the FOP pay my dues $$$ for President Marko or any of the other lodge pooches to attend this farce? I'm told he flew out and then got shut out b/c FOP in keeping with its anti-labor platform endorsed McCain.

Trying to confirm before I blow a gasket at the next meeting. Since impeachment seems to be a popular theme in our state perhaps we need to continue the trend!

Its not unusual for managers and executives of many organizations to have little or no experience doing the jobs of the people they direct.

I just don't see that aspect of this situation as being a big deal and in the real world, most of the time they can learn enough to manage things quite well, even knowing very little about how things are done.

We have spent bazillions of dollars supposedly educating and training teachers to run school systems and it has failed miserably.

I am not suggesting this guy has any chance of improving the Chicago school system, but not having a teaching certificate is not why he won't do real well at it.

Bullshit.

What 'real world' do you live in?

The only thing that happens, when someone in management doesn't know shit about what they're managing, is mismanagement.

Been there, seen that, dealt with it.

How, you ask?

By ignoring the idiot 'manager' and continuing to do my fucking job, the way I know it should be done.

I'm still here.

Guess who's not.

You are correct. The city took the hit on that one (as did Kruesi) but I hear the main screw up was that the CTA (and the several people Ron assigned to the program) didn't get their part of the plan to the city in time to submit the agreement to the City Council - in time to get the money. Yeah, the money they announced last April that they had.

I hear Ronny's house of cards is falling down and he desperately wants out before that happens.

Confirmed by a Trooper that was working the Obama stuff. Lodge 7 President Mark Donahue was in DC for the inaugural events acting like a big shot. Trouble is he didn't get in anywhere. So we paid for him to go out there, since I'm sure he didn't pay himself, and all he got was disrespected and a free trip. According to my pal the troopers lodge did not waste their money. Did you say something about impeachment?

It's such a cute story, that mommy and daddy Huberman makes very very large political donations for their little boy Ronnie and he gets whatever he wants. I have personally met him on several occasions, and he one of the most condescending and arrogant people I have ever met. He actually thinks he is the hottest and most intelligent man to enter City government, and apparently Richie agrees. It's so sad, that it's funny. Chicago, gotta love it what $ can buy.

Huberman was behind a multi-million dollar procurement fraud while at OEMC. Can it be that hard to uncover? How about the city's great inspector general.
